If you want to create bootable USB sticks at computer startup you may need one of the software listed below. In fact, it often happens to put the operating system on your pen and you have to extract the file archive. If you extract it normally with an archive software (winzip, 7zip, etc.) it can happen that it does not start when the PC starts up. Then you will need to extract it and install the boot files with one of the following software

 

RUFUS [WIN + MAC + LINUX]

rufus_142908.png

It is absolutely the best software to create pens and bootable usb devices. Works with windows, linux and mac. I recommend it especially for windows and mac while for linux it’s better its dedicated netbootin software

UNETBOOTIN [LINUX]

unetbootin_96538

It only works for linux. The advantage of this software is that it allows you to automatically download the most common versions of Linux distros.

UNIVERSAL USB INSTALLER [WINDOWS]

universal-usb-installer_94974

It would be the possible alternative to RUFUS because USB universal only works on Windows. Although RUFUS is ideal you will never have the certainty that it starts as it should.

Here’s what’s happening in Hong Kong…

HK

Many of you have certainly heard in recent days about the clashes between police and student demonstrators in Hong Kong. But what’s really going on? As is well known, Hong Kong is a state of its own but is a special administrative region of China.

It has its own currency, its own culture, its own political system and above all its judicial system, which includes the right to freedom of speech and of expression. Autonomy, however, has an expiration date: in 2047 it will lose the special permits of Hong Kong and China will be able to put its hands in the capitalist economic system and in the rights and freedoms of its citizens.

For an amendment to the law on extradition (the practice whereby a State delivers to another State an individual who is in its territory, but who is the object of a criminal action in the other). At the moment Hong Kong has extradition agreements with about twenty countries, but not with China. The amendment would have forced the region to hand over to China suspects from Beijing for certain crimes. Many people, however, saw the risk of new human rights violations, and the use of extradition by the Chinese as a pretext to reach political dissidents who had fled to Hong Kong (it was enough to accuse them of crimes and demand their extradition). On June 9, street protests officially began, with one million people taking to the streets.

The protesters demand the withdrawal of the amendment to the extradition law (which took place on 24 October); the establishment of an independent commission of inquiry into police violence; universal suffrage; release and amnesty for arrested protesters; the elimination of the name of “rioters”. “Five requests, not one less”, is their slogan.

Cultivate one’s own culture

How much does our culture influence our character and our life? A lot if what we learn influences us in an unconscious way, that is, so that in the moment in which we do something we are not aware of it.

Although some things enlighten us, we cannot put them into practice. Often the things we learn do not enter our minds and we “forget” them. Thus culture and our cultural baggage must be cultivated constantly, even a little a day …

Our soul is not formed in one blow. But you need constancy and patience. Modeling the character can take a long time. We often forget our aspirations for fatigue, for distractions, or for lack of tenacity. The book represents the icon of our soul, of our history but also of our memories. Sometimes it is mandatory to dust off certain pages of our luggage.

The big brother of the future…

What differs us from animals? Many would answer the instinct. The answer is not wrong, however it is not entirely correct. I would say that another thing that differs us from animals is modesty. If we did not have modesty our actions would not be conditioned by any shame or feeling. Although even animals have a little of modesty, especially dogs, the difference with us is really substantial. The lack of modesty is what is shaping up with the new technologies, especially 5G, which will make our lives increasingly hyperconnected. Where does our public life end and where does the private one begin? The big brother is the parody of the future. The big brother is the parody of the future. Our every look is under everyone’s eyes or at least it could be through spying means like drone and cameras.
You imagine what would happen if computer experts or hackers mounted cameras in people’s homes: there would be no more privacy.
A few days ago the Italian television program Report made a well-documented investigation into all cases of espionage in the world: staggering levels.

“Spying would perhaps be tolerable if it could be exercised by honest people”

[Montesquieu]

 

5G is coming…

5G

Being able to download a movie in HD in just a few seconds is what will allow 5G, the new communication technology for mobile phones and internet networks. It is now a hyperconnected world: refrigerators will talk with intercoms, we will talk with the washing machine etc .. But will it be good? Some people argue that the 5G frequencies are bad, but for now no one is alarmed, in fact, they are all excited about the new technology. But I believe that a great deal of enthusiasm is due to personal and community interests.

The progress of time almost always implies technological progress but the latter does not lead to social progress. Much of the technology is misused. It is an infinite resource but could end up being harmful to many. It is a world that makes us believe we are in contact with everyone, but in reality it isolates us to the extent that we believe that our image or our activities on the web make us real.

I remember when I used my 56K internet and with my PC it took a few seconds to download the e-mails of a few lines … Speed ​​does not matter if the content we use does not make us better ..

Hard times for Italy: the Ilva steelworks in Taranto closes.

Ilvasteelworks
A Glimpse of the ilva steelworks in Taranto (Italy)

In recent weeks, Arcelor Mittal, a multinational that acquired the former l’ilva in 2012, terminated the contract by sending 10,000 people home. The interruption of steel production, in addition to the unemployment of people, creates a 1.5% decrease in GDP: a disaster in terms of economy.

The reason for the termination of the contract, according to the statements of the multination, would be that there is no longer any interest in continuing production in the Taranto area. But many have said instead that in reality the reason would be that the company would not want to submit to the rules of the Italian government, which has not renewed the penal shield. Many do not know, that the state, to guarantee the company to work comfortably, has put up criminal shields, to protect any seizures of the judiciary for environmental irregularities.

In fact, due to the steel plant, the Tatanto area has for decades been one of the most polluted areas in Europe and perhaps in the world. Many people in the area surrounding the plant have died of cancer. Almost nothing has been done over the years to avoid this tragedy, and the very high mortality of cancer has scientifically shown how fine particles are 100% the cause of cancer.

For decades it had to go down to the compromise between health and work, an absurd thing. How can the health of citizens be traded for work, which should really be a means of sustenance?

Venice devastated by high water

venezia-acqua-alta-690x362

In the night between 12 and 13 November Venice was devastated by a storm that brought the sea level rise by 187cm! Although high water is almost a customary in Venice, this time the size of the event due to its intensity and consistency has not occurred since 1966, when the water rose by 194cm, a historical record for the city.

There were two victims, including one for electrocution due to a short circuit.

For years, Venice has been building a system called MOSE to block the rise of the sea. This system has cost the state 5 billion euros, with enormous delays in the completion of the works, especially for numerous investigations of bribes that led to the arrest of many people, including the former president of the Veneto region(Giancarlo Galan).

In the coming decades, Venice risks disappearing because climate change will lead to an increase in the sea. Furthermore, the land on which Venice rests is increasingly lowered.

It is incredible how this very serious theme has not led the Venetians to take measures without falling into corruption. Many think that the Mafia exists only in the south, but in recent years all the political scandals have come from the administrations of northern regions.

In the last few months Salvini of the Lega, is enjoying success, despite very debatable issues. He argued that the construction of the TAV (high speed train) was necessary but in reality it is the pretext to steal more money.

LP – Shaken

 

LYRIC

All night, sippin’ on a feelin’
Won’t lie, was nervous for this evenin’
Then you arrive

Oh god, why you gotta look so
So hot? Remembering your body on mine
I wanna cry

I, I knew that you’d be here tonight
But suddenly I’m paralyzed
Who’s she by your side?

She looks at you like I used to
And I’m just sitting in the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken
I thought only I would get that smile
Now I’m just watching from the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken

Oh no, feelin’ that vertigo
Slow row, feelin’ that swell of desire
Am I on fire?
Flashbacks rolling like a movie
Whiplash, she’s holding you instead of me
Is that your type?

I knew, I knew that you’d be here tonight
But I don’t know how it got so late
Just trying not to catch your eye
(See my face)

She looks at you like I used to
And I’m just sitting in the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken
I thought only I would get that smile
Now I’m just watching from the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken

And it feels like I’m watchin’
Somebody else live my life
Sh-sh-shaken
Yeah, it feels like I’m watchin’
Somebody else live my life
Sh-sh-shaken

It’s just a kiss but they’re not my lips
So I’m just sitting in the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken
You’re leaving now but you turn around
And I try to hold a smile
But I’m just breakin’, b-b-breakin’

She looks at you like I used to
And I’m just sitting in the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken
I thought only I would get that smile
Now I’m just watching from the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken

And it feels like I’m watchin’
Somebody else live my life

Silence does not exist: it is the song of birds!

music

In the big cities there is no more silence and noise pollution has become daily. We often use music to isolate ourselves from the surrounding world, full of noise and chaos. In fact, in addition to giving emotions (often deriving from its musical genre), music has a therapeutic function.

Many studies have shown that while listening to music, the body increases the production of endorphin, which acts like a morphine in the brain, alleviating depression or anxiety.

Anyway. the best solution to detach ourselves from the chaos of the city would be to get in touch with nature.

But what exactly is silence? Pure silence almost never exists because probably the silence itself is a deafening noise to the solitude of our soul. True silence is when we hear birds singing or how much we hear the sound of crickets or cicadas …

Philosophical crumbs of Tuesday

solitudestreetimg

To be comfortable with others, you need to be comfortable with yourself first. Often the real solitude is not the physical one but the inner one. You can feel alone even if you have friends. In fact you can also have many companies, but if these don’t make you feel good, it’s better to be alone. In fact we often feel bad because the best part of our soul is torn off us while we see our worst side growing inside us. In these cases it is worthwhile to take a period of solitude and reorganize our soul, which can also feel tired of the presence with the everyday world.
The periods of introspection are almost always considered sad and depressing and are not addressed, continuing their hectic life with the illusion that things can improve.
